Gadgets 4.1.1
System monitoring gadgets inspired by the well-known AddGadgets.com Windows Sidebar gadgets.

Arguably, some of the best and most popular Vista and Windows 7 Gadgets for system monitoring were done by AddGadgets.com. Unfortunately, with the deprecation of the Gadget platform and outright banning of gadgets by some corporate policies, these gadgets have become obsolete. Gadgets aren't supported in Windows 8 or Windows 10 without hacks and workarounds and often they break after applying Windows Updates.

I've searched everywhere to find equivalent gadgets, and finally found one on the Rainmeter forums, the "All CPU Meter" skin, by James Musix. The skin never made it out of beta, so I've completed his original work and expanded the suite to include a number of the most widely used AddGadgets.com gadgets.

Stellar work on these gadgets. I've been using the original gadgets for 10+ years and was looking to switch things up a little since windows gadget support is a little scetchy these days. This was the perfect solution for me. Thank you so much.

On a side note, would you be able to remake "Top Process Monitor" to look like your gadgets? Or add it to your cpu meter?

Glad you like the Gadgets!  Rainmeter does not have a built-in capability to monitor the top N processes (it can monitor only one top process).  There are third-party plug-ins that can do it, but most either don't work well or are abandonware.  There are also major issues with doing this reliably in a multi-language environment (due to needing to filter out some process names).  So unfortunately the short answer is no, this isn't really doable, and if I did it anyway it would be a constant maintenance headache for me. You can find Rainmeter skins that will do this, but YMMV.  Sorry!

if it is possible, could you make a rainmeter version of Q's Drive info sidebar gadget? I still have a copy if you need it as a point of reference.

I'm not familiar with that gadget.  If it returns a lot of low-level drive info, then it might not be possible with RainMeter.

it doesn't.  all it does is list the drives, shows the free space and space used, and indicates which drives have an OS on them. it also live updated with optical drives are used and if a flash drive is plugged in. if also gives an eject button for optical drives and flash drives.

OK, I see.  That sounds pretty similar.  The Drives Meter gadget does not support optical or network drives because Windows PerfMon does not report stats for these drives, so they are excluded.  USB drives are OK though.  Rainmeter does not handle ejecting either, unfortunately, so that part isn't possible.
